Simon has been invaluable to me in helping MGF to review its logistics needs and challenges, and presented to us in a very succinct and unambiguous manner options towards a new and improved future. He is an excellent communicator who can take very complex ideas and summarize them into easily understood components and in layman terms. As he worked with our executives and spoke with our customers during the discovery phase his style was incredibly user-friendly, which was very well received. I find him of great value and have continued to engage him in subsequent phases of our journey.

Karen Millen engaged Simon last year to provide a prognosis of the KM Supply Chain. Over the course of 2 months, Simon worked collectively within the Karen Millen team as well as the outsourced Distribution Providers. Simon produced an executive summary for the Karen Millen Leadership team encompassing all areas of the Supply Chain. The work and recommendations Simon provided was exceptionally valued and relevant. In particular, Simon highlighted cost saving measures and suggested efficiency improvements that the business incorporated into Short Term Action and Longer Term Strategy. Simon’s expertise within the International Supply Chain arena coupled with the understanding of Brand Equity was the key to the success of the project. We will endeavour to work with Simon again in the near future.
